An example of how you could benefit from Coursera Financial Aid
When Coursera began offering Course Certificates, they committed to supporting a comprehensive financial aid option. The idea being that this would be critical to achieving their mission of enabling all individuals, regardless of their financial means, to access the world’s best education. Below is an example of how one individual in Africa benefited from Coursera Financial Aid:
“After receiving a BA, Michael Tumwesigye started teaching in Uganda and Kenya. In 2007, he went back to his hometown, Kampala, to help his aunt start a nonprofit called “In Need Home” — an organization dedicated to the care, protection, and education of orphans and vulnerable children. He dreamed of going back to school to acquire the skills he needed to accelerate the program’s curriculum, but had limited financial resources. Searching for ways to improve his situation, he found Coursera.
After browsing the catalog, he applied for Financial Aid and earned certificates for several courses, including the Virtual Teacher Program Specialization offered by The University of California, Irvine. He proudly lists all of his Course Certificates on his LinkedIn profile.”
